Turbo Tax Price Increase means – FILE NOW!
Over the weekend, I got an email from TurboTax stating that they will be raising their prices on after March 25th. So if you haven’t completed or filed your return yet, they encourage you to file your taxes before prices go up. This price hike is on TurboTax Online Basic, Deluxe, Premier and Home & Business. So file now!
One of the reasons I love TurboTax Online edition, is that you can enter everything in and see your final result before you pay them a penny! They do have a free edition as well. I filed my federal and state and used the Deluxe version because our situation is a little more complex than the . You can see the final cost here (this reflects the pre-3/25 rates):
Cost of Federal and State TurboxTax Deluxe Edition:
The free edition works for the 1040EZ and simple returns. And the cost of the basic state return is $27.95 (will go up 3/26).
ALSO, if you file right now (e-file and select direct deposit) and your return is accepted (mine was accepted within 12 hours) before 11:00 am Thursday the 24th, in most cases, you’ll get your tax refund deposited into your checking on Friday April 1st!
What am I doing with my tax return? We’re saving the majority of our refund, but our fridge is about to die, so I’m looking for a used one on craigslist (yay!).
